By Caitlin Burns | September 14, 2018

Associate Professor of Visual and Performing Arts Abbey Ryan ’03’s solo still life exhibit, “Abbey Ryan: Poetic Realism,” was reviewed in the Lincoln County News Aug. 21 article, “Review: Abbey Ryan Still-Life Show at Gleason Stuns with Attention to Detail.”

The review notes: “Ryan excels at portraying reality so perfectly that it seems beyond perfect, hyper-beautiful. Additionally, her use of dark backgrounds behind her subjects and dark wooden frames for her paintings serves to focus the viewer’s attention on her stunningly constructed subject matter.”

“Abbey Ryan: Poetic Realism” was on display at Gleason Fine Art in Portland, Maine through Sept. 3.
